romney win the popular vote because the president underperformance in some of his stronger states while the president could still win the electoral college. there's lots of scenarios here but in essence the race has been frozen and here we go, it's going to get kicked back up as soon as the president gets out of his role as president only, dealing with disaster relief. >> one more word about chris christie he runs in two years and for his constituency, being able to play with the president of the united states and be bipartisan, is not a bad calling card. it's pretty essential. >> but right. it's essential because he needs the federal government. he talked about yes, they need to cut their own state budget but they need federal money for this cleanup. there's only one entity that can provide that, that's the federal government, the president. not exactly in keeping with the small government message. >> and what could be a better and bigger symbol than the picture we see right now -- >> of incumbency. >> the blue and white jet is iconic, it is what has helped most incumbents in their las

numbers, dead heat or romney slightly ahead, but the state by state breakdowns are showing that obama has the edge. stuart: i don't know how you can account for that. how can you have one candidate in the lead nationally, but behind in the key states like ohio? i don't know how that could work out, quite frankly, i don't get it. >> you're right, it can't work and that's why basically people are picking and choosing, are they going with the national or the state numbers. there's a the lot of reasons why it could be. for one thing the national pollsters have been around for a while, you know, they've got their methodology and the state polling is done by different methodologist, we'll find out november 6th who is right, but looks to me, karl rove does make a good point. when you've got ohio saying that we're going to have democrats the same turnout in 2008 when people were so excited about their candidate and so much less excited about him now. and there's no question there's a problem there. and that's the thing, every, every poll uses a different methodology. >> i don't know how you measu

the electors however they want. the electors for obama or for romney, but if a state wanted to the legislature could choose the electorate rather than having election. they would be voted out of office but they could do it. with those premises in place, the question is, can a state delay an election? yes but not for president. federal law has said you must choose your electors on the first monday after the first tuesday of november. this year, november 6. so the state of new jersey, where we live, for example, could delay congressional elections by a month because they felt candidates could not campaign because of the hurricane but it could not delay the presidential election since that is the date set by congress. so, we have to hold it on that date or hold a substitute for it, like a vote if the legislature on that date. >>neil: what is the likely hood that 20 states, says were affected by the storm in one way, shape or form, not that the entire state is affected by power outages and it is mostly in new jersey or connecticut or the other states is there anything the federal gover

key swing states. both vice president joe biden and mitt romney have cancelled campaign rallies in virginia beach that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping people with that storm. first lady michelle obama as well cancelled a campaign rally. this was in another critical swing state, in new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham, but that campus is closing for that storm. sandy's political ramifications don't stop there either. take a look at this picture that we put together for you. it shows some of the campaign layers hitting the east coast. as we mentioned, campaign events across the country being delayed or cancelled already. we've told you to expect huge travel delays as well. alexandria just mentioned that. in addition to impacting millions of travelers, though, the campaigns may have to make some last-minute maneuvering themselves. and finally, a major storm hitting the most densely populated section of the country, could certainly die verge local and nat
